This salad is packed with protein and really fills you up. So many great nutrients in this dish! First off- the chicken. I like to make it in the pressure cooker (AKA Instant Pot). Here's how I do it: Pressure Cooker Chicken

Now for the salad, you can use the pressure cooked chicken, a rotisserie chicken from Costco, grilled, sauteed or whatever chicken you have hanging around.

Greek Chicken and Quinoa Salad

Sliced Chicken Breast

Mixed baby greens

hummus (our recipe here!)

1 cucumber, diced

1 carrot, peeled and sliced thin

1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes

1/3 cup quinoa, cooked (I just make mine in the rice cooker)

1 bell pepper, diced

1/4 red onion, sliced

4 mushrooms, sliced

avocado, optional

olives, optional

Dust with some fresh mint leaves

Briana's Blush Wine Vinaigrette - to taste (link below)

Toss everything together except for the hummus. I like it dropped on top in dollops. 

A little tip: If you have leftover salad, that doesn't have dressing in it, store it in a Tupperware container with a paper towel in it to preserve freshness without getting soggy.

Eat up and enjoy!!
